Pluralsight, a Utah-based professional learning platform, announced on Monday that it has filed confidentially for an IPO.

Why it matters: This is not the sort of thing that companies typically announce (hence, the "confidentially").

Pluralsight has raised over $230 million in VC funding from firms like Insight Venture Partners, ICONIQ Capital, Felicis Ventures and Sorenson Capital.

It reportedly broke the $1 billion valuation mark back in 2014.

WHO won't call coronavirus a pandemic as cases spread

Data: The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins, the CDC, and China's Health Ministry. Note: China numbers are for the mainland only and U.S. numbers include repatriated citizens.

The World Health Organization will not yet call the coronavirus a pandemic, claiming that needs across affected countries are too varied and the classification would increase fear, per a briefing Monday.

The big picture: As South Korea and Italy stepped up emergency measures in efforts to thwart the spread of the virus, WHO expressed concern about infections with no clear link to China. COVID-19 has killed at least 2,620 people and infected almost 80,000 others, with all but 27 deaths occurring in mainland China.
